that are on the ground in libya. there is one u.s. navy destroyer off of the coast and another coming there, too and f.b.i. agents and as well a stepped up drone surveillance. we are talking about a terror manhunt in libya. in addition to the motivator of that film made in the u.s., it could be a complex organization to take out u.s. officials with an al-qaida link. we are looking at the video we have seen coming from the al-qaida number one who is citing that the al-qaida number two was killed by the u.s. and called on action from the u.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomo
that interview tomorrow night on piers morgan. >>> an who -- retired fbi agent robert levinson disappeared during a business trip to iran's kish island. u.s. officials believe he's being held captive somewhere in southeast asia. in a video released last year, that was apparently made two years ago. robert levenson is asking the u.s. to help him get home. >> levenson's wife christine traveled to new york in the hopes of getting ahmadinejad involveded in situation. >> we'll never, ever, ever stop looking for you. >> the fbi has offered a million dollar reward for any information leading to levenson's safe return. >>> now to a police shooting in houston, an officer shot and killed a double amputee after police say he advanced on the officer's partner in his wheelchair. police were called by the people in the group home where he lives. when you hear just the basic facts here, you wonder, this guy's in a wheelchair, how could this escalate to a shooting? >> this all started over candy, cigarettes and soda. he became aggressive with his caretakers, after asking for candy and soda and cigarettes at abou
, like why hasn't the fbi been able to get in there. how is it that cnn can contaminate a crime scene and take crucial evidence? the fact that an fbi agent can't be in there yet is a crime in and of itself. this administration has a lot to answer for. they want the foreign policy to be the election policy and now it's front and center. >> eric: is the administration lying? is there a coverup? >> no, i don't think they are lying at all. i think their response is less than commanding. the first information you get from a crisis overseas is imperfect, wrong or it will change or a few days. it is not a question, that there were late to rolls release on friday afternoon, an update that, yes, this was a planned attack. but the defining issue is here the security of the compound. we know that the british ambassador, the united nations office and the red cross office in benghazi had been attacked recently, prior to the attack and the murder of our wonderful ambassador there. but the equivalent what have it costs to keep one member in afghanistan half a year is the protection we gave the consu
the stove pipes are down, intelligence is red teamed, the fbi now has a national security branch, staffed by 10,000 people. i mean how could it be that people were learning how to fly planes and not land. these were the kinds of things they would look out for. and as bob mueller said in open session to us, we've had 20 attempts at the last year and every one of them has been stopped. i think that's good news. so we have learned. we have a counterterrorism center that specializes now in threats to the homeland. we have a director of national intelligence to provide coordination over the 16 different intelligence agencies. no longer are they their own spheres, they're part of a network. there have been changes and we have learned hard lessons. >> how important is the killing yesterday in yemen of the second in command al qaeda's second in command, al shirry. >> that hasn't been confirmed to the best of my knowledge. i don't know whether he is dead or not. but if he is, it's certain lay positive thing. over half of the al qaeda leadership has been taken out. the problem is, that they're repl
back and confirmed what the fbi report said from earlier that year, which had been kind of pushed under. we got lucky in that times square bombing. we solved that one. thank god the bomb did not off. but you know, we have had 10,000 people die in that war. thank god we got osama bin laden and it was a police action. thank you so much. host: how should we mark the day? last night on facebook we ask all of you to comment on how america has changed in the 11 years. host: you can put your comments on facebook about how we should mark this day or how america has changed. here is "the boston globe" this morning. "a quieter 9/11, after an intense anniversary last year, families welcome a setback." "for some, it means scaling back." "some communities have decided to scale back, prompted by a growing feeling that it may be time to move on. nearly every ceremony will be smaller this year, even after the epicenter of the attacks has stripped the ceremony of its politicians who have in the past read literary or religious policies. instead, bagpipers and a huge chorus will provide the music. george
the attack. he said, get the fbi director on the phone. fortunately the instructions had been given to get the fbi director on the phone before he walked in, so we could say, he is right here, mr. president. he then talked to the vice president and talked to governor pataki and other leaders. he worked on remarks for the american people that he delivered before an audience of 600 people. he thought he was there talking about leaving no child left behind and education and said he was going back to washington, d.c. i knew he wasn't going back to washington ton d.c. he and i had quite an argument because he wanted to go back toe washington. see set service and pilot of the air force one didn't want to go back until we knew what happened. we went to louisiana. landed there. took some people off air force one. we flew to omaha, nebraska, strategic air command center and went down into a deep bunker. the whole time the president was deliberate, decisive, strong leader. he did not want to be disruptive to the responsibilities that were being met by the people getting planes safely on the ground a
. are they investigating the bank manager. >> the cops won't say but the f.b.i. pulled out box after box of evidence and on top of the apartment search, they impounded her vehicle which is interesting because the bank manager says she drove the vehicle alone from the apartment to the bank and she was followed in a white kia by the two suspects. apparently the robbers did their homework because not only did they not step foot in the bank but they had the bank manager toss the cash out the backdoor where there were no surveillance cameras leading some to wonder if the manager might have known the suspects. >> at this point we'll get all the leads that we have and all the information we have to determine the circumstances. >> reporter: police won't say how much cash the suspects got away with except to say it was significant. >> what else do cops have to go on? >> very little which is why police are retracing the path between the apartment and bae, trying to see if businesses in the area had surveillance tape of the white kia. they're also looking at cameras to see if they caught the suspects fleeing t
as the administration had said. what do you say to that? >> well, i think the evidence is still out. the fbi has just arrived. they'll do a full investigation. we'll learn a lot more later. this was coming up on september 11th. september 11, of course, is a very symbolic date throughout the world, and zawahiri who succeeded osama bin laden as leader of the al qaeda had a couple of weeks ago a call, sent a message out to the libyan people asking them to avenge the death of the number three in al qaeda that we killed with a drone in july. there are all these signs out there. we're going to have terrorist events in the future. was this premeditated? well, we'll find out. it was certainly a tense period. sdwr. >> it sounds like i'm hearing you saying that more could have been done. do you think the administration did enough to protect our men and women overseas? >> as a diplomat overseas i think they've done a great deal. sometimes you can do too much. it's a delicate balance and allowing our diplomats to get out and speak and communicate with the people and do our jobs or keeping us all locked up, i thi
, osama bin laden. who knows what? eric shaun is with us. eric, i know you have a lot of sources at the f.b.i. and other agencies like that. what can you tell us? >> i apologize for being out of breath 'cause i was walking down fifth avenue, which is close to our studios and i heard a jet, perhaps a 737 or a small air bus, flying low, unusually low over fifth avenue making a right. i'm not going to -- i don't have any reports on what type of plane hit the world trade center. but people looked up and it made a right toward the building. >> tragedy, it is abhorrent, it is disgusting, but i'm wondering, are these pilots, terrorists themselves? are there terrorists in the cockpit who are holding guns to a pilot's head? >> i can't imagine -- >> you can speculate completely about how this happens because obviously it takes a lot of training and expertise to fly a complicated, sophisticated aircraft l it's a boeing 737 or a smaller air bus. these are not little cessnas and little pipers. so you have to wonder and raise what possibility there is with the type of scenario that was going on in the coc
, national counterterrorism center director matthew olson and deputy fbi director kevin perkins testifying in the senate hearing that began in the past hour. director olson just gave an update on the investigation into last week's attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. >> the best information we have now, the facts we have now indicate this was an opportunistic attack on our embassy. the attack began and evolved and escalated over several hours. i said our embassy. our diplomatic post in benghazi. it evolved and escalated over several hours. it appears that individuals who were certainly well armed seized on the opportunity presented as the events unfolded that evening into the morning hours. >> well armed, opportunistic attack on the diplomatic post on 9/11. we'll continue to follow that hearing and bring you any important information that comes out of that. >>> new outrage in the muslim world today after a french magazine published cartoons ridiculing the prophet mohammed. security has been stepped up at the ma

circumstances. this is a job for the fbi, not the cia. by the way, by and large, most of the information that we knew, we knew it about the guy coming in to try, and it was derived from foreign. our base of knowledge of him was foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was enemy combatant, n.h. -- agent of war, deal with it that way. the roots of the information are that we should treat this as a law enforcement problem. in broad measure, my sense is that that is how we should do with it. thank you all for coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than it had and you came in. that was my intent. they you for giving me the opportunity.
